Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hinted this week that he may call a special legislative session — in addition to the two currently underway — to help solve the state’s water crisis if lawmakers can’t strike a deal on a reform plan in the near future. A legislative conference committee on water reform had hoped to deliver a package of bills for votes in the state Assembly and Senate before the end of their regular sessions Sept. 11, but the group broke down into partisan divides in the days leading up to the deadline.

Joe Gatto said he knew this day would come. Standing in the courtyard of the Autry National Center of the American West in Griffith Park on Monday afternoon, the longtime arts teacher said he knew his son, Mike, was headed for elected office 22 years ago. That's when the teenage Mike Gatto sat with his father to closely watch the Republican and Democratic conventions on television. Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) was sworn in Monday at the Autry National Center to represent California's 43rd Assembly District in front of 120 people after a brief official oath in Sacramento last month.

The 12 candidates for city council made their case for election at the traditional League of Women Voters forum, jointly sponsored with the city of Glendale on Thursday, March 12. With the April 7 election approaching, each contender was vying to be one of the three candidates chosen by voters to sit on the dais and govern for the next four years. Two of the candidates are women, three are incumbents and a number are past city commissioners. The top three vote-getters will be elected, and the results frequently in the past have come down to just a few voters separating the three winners from the rest of the pack.

Mel Blevins, who oversees water rights for the region, said the city has been dumping 5,000 gallons of treated ground water a minute into the river since Sept. 26 -- the date Glendale was supposed to start using the ground water for its drinking supply.

Tim Willert CITY HALL -- Seeking to protect Glendale's drinking water supply but avoid more legal entanglements at the same time, the City Council on Tuesday considered whether to increase chromium 6 levels from 3 to 9 parts per billion. The council, responding to pressure from the Environmental Protection Agency, had not decided by press time whether to start pumping one or both of the city's high chromium wells. "I think the 9 parts per billion is safe to drink," Councilman Dave Weaver said.

GLENDALE — A proposal to reestablish a long-abandoned well in north Glendale as a way to cut down on expensive water imports cleared its last remaining environmental hurdle on Tuesday, city officials said. The City Council unanimously approved the project’s “negative declaration,” which found the proposed well near New York Park would not have a significant impact on the environment and did not require extensive environmental review. The declaration clears the way for water engineers to complete the well’s design, hire a contractor and begin construction by October, all of which will require final approval from the council.
